Grow - openSUSE 12.3 wallpaper by ivan-cukic Grow - openSUSE 12.3 wallpaper by ivan-cukic
I was asked by Marcus and Richard of openSUSE to create another wallpaper. This one to be the default for the 12.3 release (after the stripes were used a couple releases ago).

They had the idea of the openSUSE gecko standing on a plant - see [link] which I reworked to create this. The release (the release is in less than a month) will contain various resolutions that Richard has rendered, I'm posting just the original here.

I don't really think it comes even close to stripes, but nothing does :) But, it *is* very pleasant to have on your desktop, and quite calming.

As usual, the image is done in Inkscape. Without any post-processing.

I installed 13.2 and there's a boring wallpaper. But once I saw someone with this wall and I thought that it was killer.

And after a quick search I ended up here. Thank you for this wall. :)

You're welcome. :)

This one was the default in a few (I think) past versions. They needed a change. :)

It even made it into 13.1.
A bit too minimalist for my tastes but it is unique.

Naturally. If you need different resolutions though, you'll need to grab it from opensuse repositories (or wherever they keep the wallpapers).

Damn, now when I know what a spiro curve in inkscape is, I'm slightly annoyed that I do these things manually :)
